I have no plans on stopping my tournaments on Sunday Afternoon. I suggest we exercise common sense and practice distancing ourselves and not hanging out in crowds. Look around you if someone appears to be sick put more distance between you and them. I carry a bar of soap in my boat (always have. I was taught that fish could sense your oil on the lures), now it has multiple purposes. That said, I cannot think of a safer place than being on the lake fishing!
We have this Sunday and next weekend then the Sunday Afternoon tournaments are done until November. Come and join us and if you don't make it we'll miss you regardless of your reasons!
Fees are unchanged, $20 to the tournament which includes a $5 Big Bass, and a 1-5 payback (6 places after 25 no matter how many) and a $10 side pot (optional but everyone gets in it!). Rules are simple: you decide individual/team/how many in the team, 3 fish limit per entry, 1 dead fish allowed and Big Bass must be alive, no live bait and be courteous and friendly. Most of all, HAVE FUN!
The park manager wanted me to remind you guys that this is not a COE ramp and the COE passes will not work here. Please either get an envelope and put your money in the box down by the ramp on the right, or get the Bartow County launch pass ($5 a day or $40 for the annual).
All events are 1PM till 5PM until the daylight savings time shift in March then we finish out at 1PM till 6PM.
All tournaments are held out of Bartow County Gatewood Park: Exit GA-20 exit on I-75 and turn east, Turn south at the light (right from I-75, left from Canton) next to Wendy's onto Spur 20. Go about 2 miles and turn left on Jim Knight Rd., Turn left when it dead ends at the Bartow Beach Rd. (right in front of the COE maintenance yard). Stay on the Beach road and stay to the left past the park Manager's house and follow the signs to the left to the boat ramp
